BiographyI am an economic historian specializing in Asian economies. In recent years my research interests have broadened, moving from regional issues to global issues. I have published a book about the relationship between nationalism and economic development in Eurasia in which the spread of European ideologies plays a prominent role. I am presently extending the theme of the global spread of modern ideologies focusing upon the long-run relationship between religion and capitalism.
